TN eCampus: For students

resources for students taking and faculty teaching TN eCampus courses

TN eCampus logo  This page is for TN eCampus students who are either taking a course taught by Vol State faculty or are enrolled at Vol State.

On this page you will find information on the Virtual Library and how to get help with library resources. Discover other resources to help you with your TN eCampus course.

Students needing Interlibrary Loan (ILL) should contact their home school. Your home school is the college or university where you are enrolled as a student. A current student ID from your home school allows you to check out books from any TBR or UT college or university. Ask for more information at your library.

TN eCampus Virtual Library

There is Course Resources box for each course. It is located on the main page of the course and here you will find the Virtual Library link. Use the Virtual Library page to find the login information for the library's resources. Each course may use a different college library.

Using Thigpen Library at Vol State

This video shows you how to find databases and research guides from Thigpen Library's website. TN eCampus students using their course's shared login can use all the databases, but do not have access to the library's NoodleTools account. The references to library links in eLearn are not relevant; students in TN eCampus will only find library links from the Virtual Library in Course Resources.

Is your professor from Vol State?

There is a library login link to the Virtual Library inside your course. The current username and password is on this page. If the library login information is missing or incorrect contact the professor.

Type carefully! The user name and password are case sensitive. Too many incorrect login attempts will temporarily lock the shared account.

Vol State librarians can help you use our library resources.

Is your professor from another college?

Faculty typically link you to resources available at their college. The login information should be in the Virtual Library link for your course. Courses use different virtual libraries; so, check each course.

If library login information is missing, contact the professor or use the TN eCampus access to library link.

Need to contact the library at your professor's college? Contact information for each college library is available through the TN eCampus | Virtual Library help link
